10:37 pm
it's an opportunity to say thank you to them. but it is also an opportunity for us, the navy, and the military members to show them some of our equipment. show them what we do. and to thank them for supporting us. >> reporter: it is estimated that fleet week alone will inject $10 million into the local economy. and back here behind me a number of military equipment, aircraft, boats, you name it, so the public can get up close and personal with some of the weapons of war. in california, casey stegall, fox news. today marks the anniversary of one of the most pivotal moments in american history. >> if you think t.v. hasn't made a difference the kennedy nixon debate. the presidency on the line everyone talks about today. and on t.v. for the first time they were. take a look at how much it really mattered. >> plus no dogs allowed even if you are disabled. find out why a service animal got kicked out of a mall. >> we started out with showers
